Ultrahaptics Sensory Interface, 2018
Ultrahaptics technology uses ultrasonic waves to create invisible forms and textures that can be felt on the skin. In buses, buttons and cords are not always easy for passengers to access to request a stop. In a collaboration with Accessible Olli, Ultrahaptics designers combined their technology with gesture tracking to create an invisible stop button that comes to a passenger’s hand when he or she is in range. The button is accessible from a much wider area and requires less force and fine motor control to operate than traditional controls.
